The New World Order, Illuminati, Freemasons, Knights of Malta

The above are subjects with which we must become intimately familiar if we wish to ensure freedom, liberty, and a decent quality of life for our children.

The coming years and decades are sure to become very trying times for the average families in America and around the world. Do humanity a favor by educating yourself and taking action now.

The Full Lotus recommends a quick Google Video search on the above topics.

Keep in mind that history has shown us that conspiratorial behavior by powerul men is undoubtedly THE RULE, not the exception.

9/11 was an inside job.

The stakes are quite high. Freedom and liberty for yourself, your children, and their children. Freedom and liberty for the entire human race for the rest of time is at stake. Inform yourself now by watching the movie linked below, and then DO SOMETHING!

9/11 The Road to Tyranny

Freedom of the Press.

Media Matters for America regularly gives us relevant and exhaustingly researched information regarding the mainstream media (MSM)'s disinformation.

The MSM in the United States was hijacked by conservative ideologies long ago. Witness the unrelenting efforts of a fascist government that wants you to be ignorant:

It shall be no less than A declaration of war.

Guantanamo Sucks.

And somebody isn't very good at hide & seek.

In the above article Guardian Unlimited, one of the UK's finest media outlets, shows the U.S. Government how it's done.

But don't let Guantanamo grab all your attention; it serves merely as the public face of a much larger and much more horrific torture network brought to you by your friendly neighborhood Secret Government.

UN to ban guns Worldwide.

This is a scary development indeed. The Full Lotus would rather see international leaders taking guns from The State, not from the people. It's our Second Amendment right for a damn good reason.

Kofi Annan is quoted as saying: "This Review Conference is not negotiating a ‘global gun ban’..."; meanwhile presenting Nations express their desires to do just that. Wtf?

Read about Day 1 of the U.N. Gun Ban Summit, and Day 2 of same.

Warning Signs.

"A vital element in keeping the peace is our military establishment. Our arms must be mighty, ready for instant action, so that no potential aggressor may be tempted to risk his own destruction...
This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence — economic, political, even spiritual — is felt in every city, every statehouse, every office of the federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.
In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.
We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals so that security and liberty may prosper together."
-Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, January 17, 1961

One Man Makes Difference

The Full Lotus likes Howard Stern. His funniest moments are comic brilliance. He and his crew, Jackie Martling, Fred, and Robin offer up plenty of their own lives for our amusement. Few media personalities are as forthcoming on-air.

His popularity and earning potential allow him to trade blows with major media corporations without nary a scratch. We applaud his courage however selfish his motives.

The Full Lotus has reason to believe that Stern coined the term 'gaydar'. As in one's ability to spot 'Moes.

The Vault Reopened: Letters to Congress!

Full Lotus wrote the following letter in response to 2 Georgia congresspersons, Nathan Deal and Charles W. Norwood, voting against Net Neutrality. Shame on them, we say.

April 27, 2006

Re: Net Neutrality

Representative Deal,

I am writing you in regards to the issue of Net Neutrality. I have lived in Georgia for 23 years, and Atlanta for 10. I am 28 years old, a former Georgia Tech student and Governor’s Honors Program participant; and am employed by a Fortune 500 company in Atlanta. I actively educate myself on political and policy matters that affect Georgians the greatest. I am deeply concerned about future legislation in the area of Net Neutrality.

Because of the present Broadband oligopoly in Georgia, our consumers are afforded fewer choices, and less competition is fostered in the Broadband marketplace. Broadband access prices will continue to rise unchecked, deepening the divide between the haves and have-nots in Georgia. Affordable Internet access is crucial to giving all Georgians, and all Americans, equal opportunity for success and well-being.

The consequences of allowing for-profit organizations to control the Broadband Internet include internet censorship and discrimination on a global scale. If Net Neutrality legislation is not vigorously enforced by Congress, our democracy will be threatened by irreparable harm. Today corporations enjoy far greater liberties and protections than American citizens themselves. Today nearly all major media outlets including television, radio, and print are misinforming Americans in the name of profit. These are pitiful conditions if we aim to ensure a vibrant democracy for our children and our children’s children. The Internet must be protected from a similar condition. Please vote to guarantee that Georgians will have uncensored access to all information on the Internet forever. It starts with Net Neutrality.

You voted against Net Neutrality on April 26th by voting ‘NAY’ in the Markey Amendment Vote. This is very unfortunate for our state and for our country. I urge you and your colleagues to learn more about this issue and all that is at stake. I will be sending a similar letter to your House Housecolleague, Representative Norwood, in the hopes that Georgia’s Representatives will soon support legislation that protects Net Neutrality. I truly appreciate your continued attention to this vital issue.

Ignorance isn't democratic bliss.

You can read corporate news sources, but you can't believe them. Nearly every "large" media outlet in the United States has enourmous conflicts of interests with your need to know what is happenening in your country and around the world. The conflicts of interest stem largely from the profit motive of The Companies that own all major news outlets.

We govern ourselves. To govern well, we must know. FAIR and Balanced.

How to crush the competition.

If the competition happens to be your retarded Corporate CAD Director who wants to prohibit all 250 of the company's Architectural designers and drafters from changing a single one of AutoCAD's options. Get some.

Here we are treated to a Bonus Work Sample from the Full Lotus e-mail vault. Feast your eyes on the combination for total victory.

A Note on Disclosure: It is against my employer's (hereinafter referred to as “the company”) policy for me to discuss “the company” with anyone, ever. Or something close to that. Point being until this blog makes me more money than my 9 to 5, mums the word.

Mr. (Retarded Senior CAD Director),

This email is in reference to our inability to customize AutoCAD 2006 to individual user’s needs. My background includes 13+ years as an AutoCAD user in the fields of Architecture, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, and Surveying, among others. I have trained professional designers and drafters in AutoCAD for over 10 years, and have managed and maintained CAD databases and CAD standards for multinational AEC firms.

The inability to customize AutoCAD for our individual users severely limits productivity and our ability to be creative in how we approach the myriad CAD challenges that we face. This translates into a dramatic reduction in ROI for our deployed CAD systems. The value of (our CAD system) lies not in its ability to be standardized across a large user-base, but in its ability to be tailored to individual drafters and for individual challenges in ways that make every drafter more productive while still achieving the same end-result from each user: high-quality, consistent construction documents.

Within our office are several highly-qualified CAD professionals with many years of CAD experience. These individuals bring to bear a great deal CAD problem-solving knowledge. This knowledge is often applied via AutoCAD customization which solves problems that are unique to our office and to our users. These efforts have, without question, reduced our production costs significantly. Customizing a CAD system at the user level to solve unique challenges increases ROI dramatically. This fact cannot be overstated, and is undisputed among CAD professionals.

I am told by my superiors that ("the company") is a progressive company. Frankly our current policy towards CAD deployment is most definitely un-progressive.

Explainer: How Bad Is It To Have Birdshot in Your Body?

Knowing is half the battle.

Full Lotus reviews the PSP.

Skinny: If you want multimedia on the go, look no further.

Good: Outstanding for video games, great for movies, and good for music on the go. Built-in wi-fi modem. Godly widescreen, ultra-crisp display. Slick and sleek and design. Cool custom applications via your friendly neighborhood hackers.

Bad: Fragile. Cost of software, memory, and USB cable drives up price. Internet browser has limited funtionality. Process for moving files between PSP and computer may boggle computer illiterates.

Down and Dirty: This is a badass gadget. If you’ve got 400 bucks to blow, GET ONE NOW. If you’re on the road on a lot and you want movies, music, video games, and wireless internet in the palm of your hand, GET ONE NOW. Otherwise there are better investments for home video games (Xbox Live), home movies (Limewire), and home music (Limewire again), so you might opt not to GET ONE NOW.
